AWARDS

Parent and Teacher Choice Award

Readability has been chosen by the Howtolearn.comTeam as a Parent and Teacher Choice Award winner.The team was impressed by their ease to use, gamification style to hold the child's interest and more.

"When we reviewed this app, we discovered everything a reading specialist and learning expert would want - progress checking, quizzes that are not multiple choice and kindly request that your child rethinks their answer if they get it wrong - then after 3-4 tries, gives them them answer, repetition of words they got correct and wrong in future segments, and your child gets to read aloud increasing their fluency and word recognition as well!"

Readability has proudly been honored with their gold medal in the app category. Please read more here.

The Educational App Store is a discovery, review, and recommendation platform for educational apps. The apps approved by the Educational App Store are certified and reviewed by experienced teachers. With thousands of learning tools out there, Educational App Store believes in challenging the status quo of app discovery by identifying truly exceptional apps to highlight for our young learners.

According to the Educational App Store, "Readability Tutor develops the reading skills of children. It is the first reading app that makes use of cutting-edge speech recognition and artificial intelligence technology."

Team members from the Educational App Store believe that with this technology, children won't have to wait until parents and teachers are free to listen. Instead, children can read to their mobile device, and the app models how to speak each word and sentence correctly and points out when they've made a mistake.

"Readability Tutor increases the opportunities for children to engage in practice sessions so they can really see their reading skills grow."
